“A Great Way to Get Aquainted with City”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2013

I have been living in HK for 4 years and by no means consider myself a foodie. I really enjoyed the tour. I experienced some great local cuisine I would otherwise never have discovered on my own and learned some of the history of these local cuisines. I also enjoyed the history lessons in between each of the stops. Even though the tour took about 4 hours (through Central and Sheung Wan) it didn't really feel like it was that long. The guides were very friendly, knowledgable and helpful. I wish I had done this tour when I first moved here!! I highly recommend it to anyone who is in town for a short time or anyone who has been living here for a while. There were 7 people in our tour group which ranged from couples, friends to solo travellers.

“An absolute must do!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2013

I went on the Hong Kong Central tour and it was the absolute highlight of my time here so far. The enthusiasm and passion shown by the tour guides was second to none, and as a newcomer to Hong Kong it was a great way to learn all about the cuisine and the history.

The places we visited were all off the beaten track and I never would have discovered them if not for this tour. Wonderful food, and the sugar cane juice and tea house were also completely fascinating! I want to come back and do the other tour; it will be first on my list of things to do!

Finally, I thought this was just amazing value for money. We were walking and eating and drinking and talking for hours; they really could have just rushed round the places and then been done with it, but it was perfectly paced and every minute brought something new.

“the fab secrets of Sham Shui Po!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2013

If you want to experience HK at ground level - meet real locals and try authentic local dishes then this is a MUST DO tour. 3-4 of the most enjoyable hours you can have with Silvana (your guide) and a like minded group of food lovers. And Sham Shui Po is such a great place to visit. I went back several times during my HK stay just to eat at some of the places we visited and to shop at the street markets. It is so easy to get to on the MTR too. No good if you don't like walking, but that's why it's so interesting....you get to see more.
Mr Mak and other local 'personalities' add to the colour of this great foodie, cultural and historical experience. Thanks Silvana - you girls are on a winner! And I look forward to doing it again.

“Great food reflecting on the history of the city”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2013

The guide was excellent, well informed on the history and 'story' of all the food tasting locations and the districts in general. Takes the risk out of trying some of the places that you always want to - authentic and those that have been in the family business for generations. Great variety, best wanton noodle soup i've ever tasted, dim sum, bbq pork, tea, sugar cane, and desert. GOLD.
